's presidential election between mitt romney and president obama. today he will give us an overview of the events and values that shaped the 2012 election, while giving us an inside look at the challenges and choices, public opinion it researchers face and pre- election polls. please join me in welcoming him to the taubman center. [applause] >> thank you. it is always a pleasure. always a fun time to talk about what we find in the polls, and the polling process after an election. this is a time where us in the business think a lot about what is going on and how effective pulled far at capturing public feelings. certainly we all have our feelings crossed -- fingers crossed going into election be e outcome. i thought i would start by talking about the election and what i thought the challenges were that they would face and how it played out over the course of that from our perspective, as well as what i think the exit polls said about voters in minnesota on election day. then turn it over to a little more of the discussion that can include discussions about the polling process, how things are going
